Pedestal Table Makeover

My second favorite Craigslist purchase to date is my Pottery Barn Aris Pedestal Table.  I bought it for $20!  Yes, that's right TWENTY dollars.  Its normally a $700 table!  When I bought it, it was pretty scratched up, but for $20 well worth it and nothing a little sand paper and paint wouldn't fix.

I apologize I don't have any before or progress pictures.  I finished this project right before I started my blog. I sanded, primed, put a couple coats of bistro white paint on it and finished it with a clear coat of Minwax Polycrylic® Protective Finish in a satin finish.  

Here are a few after photos.

It is an expandable table, but it didn't come with the leaf.  Possibly a future project :)

Oh and in case you are wondering what my all time favorite Craigslist purchase is, its my house.
